Leftovers are one of the best parts of a special Thanksgiving meal! Here are quick and easy leftovers recipes that recycle holiday food into new and delicious meals!
Of course, a treasured Thanksgiving ritual is to simply open the fridge and make that extra turkey into a hearty sandwich—with stuffing and cranberry sauce for flavor. (We all have our particular ways of making these sandwiches. Mayo or no mayo?)
But if the leftovers keep going, the question of what else to do might loom. These recipes offer fun and delicious ways to put leftovers to work:
This recipe uses two ingredients: leftover stuffing and eggs. That’s it! Check out this video to see How to Make Egg Nests.
This recipe makes a soft taco or a burrito. Maybe you like avocados, chopped lettuce, carrots, or olives? Go ahead–get as creative as you like.
If you’re not a fan of eggplant, you can use the stuffing to fill peppers or tomatoes.
